So the regular tickets to Barcelona were sold out, meaning I had to pay 40€ for a first class ticket, giving me access to the fabled first class lounge.
This place is a laugh! There’s super comfortable chairs, free (bad) snacks, free coffee and tea and water, and lots of people trying to look important.
They’ve even shaded the windows, so we don’t have to look out at the common peasants, standing outside for the train like idiots! Stand there, peasants! Dream of my free packaged and disgusting croissant or my tea in a thin plastic cup! Dogs! Animals! Scum!
Anyway, today is a travel day. I will get into Avignon at the end of the day. It will be horrible but tomorrow will be great. It also means I am buying myself an undeniable chance to reach Italy. Prague can wait for another day.
Update: First class sucks. These seats are spaced so far apart that I can’t rest my knees on the seat ahead of me. And there’s nowhere to charge my iPhone. At least we each get our own arm rest. These people are all fools. I bet they ride first class just because they don’t want to ride with commoners. Some people looked at me like you don’t belong here.
